Million Dollar Bay

Aptly know for the amount of items costing millions of dollars which sunk in the sea! Gee for drivers too! Very popular with tourists coming on cruise excursions.

Hi, we both found the snorkelling, fantastic here !!! It virtually starts just metres into the water. We were not disappointed in anyway. You are only limited too what you see by your own skills. Highly recommend to anyone including kids. Supervised of course. Jeeps, tanks, gun turrets, coke bottles etc. Definitely would go again. Peter & Anita.

My husband insisted we visit Santo as he had dived the Coolidge and missed out on Million Dollar Point. I gotta say we were disappointed - snorkeled site 2 times and both were murky with a strong rip. So I guess it depends on weather and time of day you visit. We did one morning - hardly any fish to...

Considering the immensity of the value of what was dumped and what could have been if the equipment was used to develop the country. Still dive both sites anyway.

Whilst the beach itself it not as pretty as some down near Port Olry, what lies beneath the surface 20m from sure makes up for it! This is by far, the most interesting snorkeling I have ever experienced. This is a must do if you are visiting Santo.

Must do if your a keen snorkeler or diver. Unfortunately the day I snorkelled here was very choppy and water was murky, but still great experience see all the old wartime machinery that was dumped here. Definitely will do again when back in Santo. Hopefully on a calmer day

this is an eyesore. Tons of dumped metal equipment and very little sea life. it is a terrible way to treat the environment and the people of vanuatu. I think the Americans should come back and clean it up

Visited with Allan Power Dive Tours - Guides gave a brief history of the site. WAs amazing to see all the junk which was dumped post WW2. Great site for a dive.

We went here with Paradise Tours and were just blown away by the snorkeing. The visibility was so clear, the coral and fish have been reclaiming the area since the U.S. military dumped their disused machinery in the bay after WWII and blew it up, a million dollars worth at that time, hence the name. You can still make out... More
